Los Angeles: Oscar-winning actress Kate Winslet has been cast in upcoming film ‘Divergent’.

‘Divergent’, based on the first of a trilogy of novels by Veronica Roth, is set in a society that is divided into five factions that define how a person lives his life, reported E! online.

Film studio Summit Entertainment said that Winslet, 37, will play the cold and unlikeable Jeanine Matthews in the film set in a dystopian future.

The studio had previously announced the casting of rising star Shailene Woodley, 21, and British newcomer Theo James, 28 in the film.

‘Divergent’, due for release in March 2014, is the latest young adult novel to be translated to the big screen following the conclusion of lucrative franchise ‘The Twilight Saga’ and the success last year of ‘The Hunger Games’.
